Oh the places we went!

I took all the pics off my phone from vacation and there are 219 of them. I think that I will break up my vacation adventures in a couple posts.

My family came in on Sunday and bright and early Monday morning (Labor Day no less!) we went for a hike at Rider Park outside Montoursville, PA. And what a hike it was!

It’s very difficult to take little babies on hikes in strollers when the terrain is a bit uphill and rocky. Yes, I know that most hikes are just that, but I was hoping for a nice wooded nature stroll. This is my sister with her small umbrella stroller not made for hiking.


She was pushing quickly past me while yelling “ARE YOU TAKING PICTURES!” hahah! Yes, I documented our grueling adventure.

We found some fun insects. Katydids!


This is my niece’s caterpillar before she suffocated him in her pocket.


And we had some vistas to look over. So beautiful!





And here is our dog, Shay, who normally is the lead of the pack but the baby was restless and found pure joy in walking her. I don’t know how long this hike was, but it felt like forever! I have so many more pictures but these are some fun ones.

More adventuring tomorrow!

Back to the Grind!

So I was MIA this past week due to my family being in for vacation. We had a well packed adventurous week. My mother likes to plan our activities each year wherever we are at and this year, I hosted.

I live in Central PA. There’s lots to do if you are an outdoorsy kind of person, which I sorta am. I certainly enjoy the outside beauty mostly from my window (hehe). I used to love to hike but my hubs ruined that for me (another story) and we did get a few miles in. We got out quite a bit seeing some things I hadn’t yet been to. I also got in quite a bit of crafting in making presents for my niece and nephews. I can’t wait to post the pics tomorrow of the places we visited and the newest works.

I’m just posting a quick hello and mentally preparing myself to go back to work tomorrow. This week was glorious! Too bad work ruins it lol
